Servings 12


  • 64 grams unsalted butter melted
  • 400 grams Mochiko (glutinous rice flour)
  • 100 grams granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 354 ml evaporated milk
  • 398 ml coconut milk full fat
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries use more if desired

Matcha White Chocolate Glaze

  • 130 grams white chocolate melting chips
  • 2.5 tsp matcha powder


  • Preheat oven to 350°F with the fan (convection). Using a pastry brush or paper tower, grease your pan with the melted butter. Don't go more than 3/4s the way up. Make sure to get all the little grooves! Depending on the size of your pan, you may be able to make a few single serving sized mini cakes as well.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, and baking powder. Whisk to combine.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, most of the butter (leave a little to grease your pan), evaporated milk, coconut milk, and vanilla extract.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until combined and smooth.
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan and carefully tap the bottom of the pan on the table a few times to remove any air bubbles.
  • Add half your raspberries to the batter. Position them evenly and press them into the batter until full submerged.
  • Bake the cake until the top is nice and golden brown and the centre of the cake is set (not jiggly). A toothpick inserted into the centre should come out clean. About 55 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool for about 15 minutes before carefully separating the edges of the cake from the pan with a knife.
  • Melt the white chocolate chips until you have the right runny consistency and add your Matcha powder. Mix until smooth, glossy, and beautiful!
  • Flip your cake out onto your serving plate. Decorate the cake by pouring your glaze over the top of the cake and piling the raspberries on-top. You may want to use a spoon for the glaze to make sure that you get nice drips down the sides.
  • Enjoy!
